FOUR FANTASTIC WORKSHOP TO CHOOSE FROM

TWO CREATIVE DAYS OF FUN!
Lydia Caine -


Apoxie Sculpt Wood Nymph
Lydia offers us a jam-packed day with her Wood Nymph class. You will learn how to manipulate Apoxie Sculpt to create a wonderfully whimsical figure. The head will be sculpted over a miniature skull and attaching it to a wire & mesh armature. This will be mounted on a dowel or wonderful piece of driftwood! You will also learn how to use Lydia's hand & foot jigs and cover them with Apoxie Sculpt. The second portion of the workshop will be to wig, dress & embellish your Wood Nymph, incorporating interesting and diverse items such as wire, glass, leaves, lace and cheesecloth.
KIT: $25.00

KATUMA McLAUGHLIN -
Know your Machine & The Science of Needles and Threads
Katuma will help you discover the secrets of your sewing machine. Have you ever asked:
  • why does my machine "jam"?
  • why do I get loose stitches, why do then "pucker"?
  • why do my needles keep breaking?
  • Are you frustrated with missing stitches, or ones that keep snagging your fabric?
Then this is the workshop for you!! Katuma will walk you through the basic science of threads & needles for both machine & hand sewing. Students are encouraged (if possible) to bring their machines & and samples of problem stitching etc. If you are unable to bring your machine, Katuma will have a couple with her.
KIT: $20.00

WENDY LYNNE RINEHART o.a.c.a.

Create an "Aztec Gold" gourd Figure
